Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Servings 8 -10 wafles


  • 2 ½ cups tapioca starch/flour also known as yuca or cassava flour
  • 4 cups grated mozzarella cheese - can also use half mozzarella & half queso fresco or quesillo cheese
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 stick of butter, softened 1 stick = 4 oz or 113 grams
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup of water or milk, add more as needed

Suggested toppings:


  • Place the cheese, tapioca flour, salt, softened butter, eggs, and ¼ cup of water in a large mixing bowl.
  • Use your hands to mix the ingredients until you have a smooth dough. Add additional water, a tablespoon or two at a time if the dough feels dry.
  • You can also make the dough in the food processor. Add the dry ingredients first, mix, and then add the wet ingredients, and mix until you have a clumpy dough.
  • Form the dough into medium to large patties. You can make these in advance and refrigerate until ready to make the waffles.
  • Heat the waffle maker as you usually would for regular waffles. Place the cheese bread patty on the center for a round waffle maker, close the waffle maker, and let it cook until crispy. Usually about 5 minutes. Open it gently when checking for doneness.
  • Remove the waffle(s), top with your preferred toppings and serve immediately.
